The online version of EndNote, while significantly less sophisticated and powerful than the parent EndNote desktop software has the advantage of being free to any user, (Note: Institutional subscribers to Web of Science obtain access to a somewhat more powerful version.) and so a reasonable choice for students and others who may not need all the features but would like to use a PBS package, and, since it is based on Thomson's servers you can access it anywhere on any computer connected to the Web. Moreover, it is a very useful tool for collaborative research efforts: multiple users can share libraries of references, and cooperatively edit Word documents.
In addition to the information below, you may wish to consult some of the excellent online tutorials at http://endnote.com/training provided by Clarivate Analytics. Tutorials are available in a variety of formats (including MP4 and WMV), and require a current Flash player for viewing. You may also want to look at the EndNote Web help pages (http://www.myendnoteweb.com/help/en_us/ENW/help.htm) and the UCSB Library's guide to EndNote (http://guides.library.ucsb.edu/endnotedesktop) and the PDF guide to EndNote Web.
